This vegan pasta dish is perfect when you want to cook up a healthy meal but, simply can’t be bothered to slave away in front of the cooker. Quick yet tasty and healthy…just what everyone wants! There’s only one type of pasta to use for this dish, penne pasta of course! The pistachio pieces end up wedged inside the tubes of pasta, which creates a crunchy surprise.

Take to work cold and impress your colleges or serve fresh from the hob for a quick dinner.

Serves 2


200g Dried brown penne pasta
2 tbsp Borna 100% Crunchy Pistachio Butter
3 tbsp Olive oil
Half a lemon
